Washington - Several members of Congress who believe that vaccines can cause autism in children criticised an official report meant to lay such fears to rest, saying on Wednesday they do not believe the findings.
The Institute of Medicine report last month was the final in a series of investigations into vaccine safety. It was meant to answer concerns about whether vaccines or the mercury-based preservatives in them can cause autism.
